GREETING TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, IN MY SEARCH FOR A RELIABLE AND GOD FEARING PERSON I GOT YOUR CONTACTS AFTER PRAYING AND I DECIDED TO SEEK YOUR HELP IN CARRYING OUT MY LAST DREAMS.
I AM MISS CAROL AKANDI, OF 19 YEARS OLD GIRL, I WAS FORMERLY A MEDICAL STUDENT OF UNIVERSITY OF SIERRA LEONE WEST AFRICA, BUT NOW I AM WRITING YOU FROM REPUBLIC OF COTE D'IVOIRE WHERE I AM TAKING REFUGE AFTER THE BRUTAL WAR THAT LEAD TO THE MURDER OF MY BELOVED PARENTS AND MY ONLY BROTHER BY THE REBELS DURING THE RENEWED FIGHTING IN OUR COUNTRY.
BECAUSE OF THE WAR MY LATE FATHER SOLD HIS SHIPPING COMPANY AND DEPOSITED US$5 MILLION DOLLARS HERE IN COTE D'IVOIRE IN A DOMICILIARY ACCOUNT WITH A BANK IN COTE D IVOIRE WHICH I AM THE NEXT OF KIN.
PLEASE I NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS.
1) TO SERVE AS THE GUARDIAN OF THIS FUND SINCE I AM ONLY 19 YEARS OF AGE.
2) TO PROVIDE A BANK ACCOUNT WHERE THIS MONEY WOULD BE TRANSFERRED
3) TO MAKE ARRANGEMENT FOR ME TO COME OVER AFTER THIS MONEY IS TRANSFERRED TO COMPLETE MY STUDIES AND ALSO LOOK FOR A GOOD VENTURE WHERE THIS MONEY WILL BE INVESTED.
I AM WILLING TO OFFER YOU 20% OF THE TOTAL SUM AS COMPENSATION OF YOUR EFFORT AND 5% FOR ANY OTHER EXPENSE YOU MIGHT MADE DURING THE TRANSFER.
THANKS AND GOD BLESS YOU
MISS CAROL AKANDI
